What Netflix Original Show You Should Watch Next, Based On Your Sign
In life, we're all searching for answers, including what you should be watching on Netflix at any given time. Thankfully, however, there are answers to that one. You can find out what to watch on Netflix, based on your sign. It might not be an exact science, but according to the personality traits of each zodiac sign, it's pretty easy to roughly gauge which show will suit you best. Because there's often too much choice on Netflix these days, this list is condensed to 12 of the best original TV shows available on the streaming platform. That way you don't have to go digging through the hundreds of shows currently on there.
While water signs like Cancer, Pisces, and Aquarius will find shows as profound and sensitive as they are, fire signs like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius will find feisty offerings that can complement their passion for life. Meanwhile, the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) will find shows a little more grounded in reality, as the air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) will find shows that explore the boundaries of reality instead.
Whatever your sign, you'll find the perfect show listed for you below. So be sure to treat yourself to a marathon pronto, because it's basically your birth right.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) - 'Stranger Things'
Your natural love for all things weird and, well, strange, lends itself perfectly to loving the strange and weird world of Stranger Things. Plus, whether you like to admit it or not, your lifelong fascination with the scientific will make you automatically feel like a long-lost part of Mike and Dustin's adorkable gang.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) - 'Love'
You're often overwhelmed by your own sensitivity and carry a lot of feelings about life, love, and the world that you need to see expressed in the shows you enjoy. And Love expresses all of that and more in abundance. You'll probably find yourself relating to both Gus and Mickey (even though they're so utterly different from each other) and bawling with empathy throughout every episode.
Aries (March 21-April 19) - 'G.L.O.W'
As the feistiest and most energetic of all the signs, you're bound to get a huge (and likely literal) kick out of G.L.O.W. In fact, after just a couple of episodes, you'll probably have already started up your own local wrestling squad and begun your first intensive training session. Go ahead and do it.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - 'Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life'
You're loyal to a fault and a total homebody who would rather hang out with close friends and family on the couch than hit the town for a wild night out. Your love for close-knit relationships, junk food, and watching bad movies with great people means that Gilmore Girls will feel like an accurate embodiment of your deepest values.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) - 'Orange Is The New Black'
Every Gemini is somewhat an enigma and full of surprises, which is why Orange Is The New Black is so well suited to people under this sign. Like you, the show doesn't reveal everything at once. Instead, it slowly unravels the truth about each character with a caustic wit that you'll also adore.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) - 'Grace & Frankie'
Since your family is so dearly precious to you, you'll definitely be able to relate to the comedy of Grace & Frankie. Not only does the show explore and celebrate a myriad of complex relationships, it also highlights the power of female friendships, too. Make one of those gigantic, home-cooked meals you love and feast upon every episode of this show ASAP.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - 'BoJack Horseman'
Every Leo is a born star and perfectionist, who's a little too competitive for their own good. You love to be the best, but that also means you fret whenever you're not feeling on top of your game. That's why BoJack Horseman would provide the ultimate catharsis for you. Showing a once successful actor struggling to regain his former glory, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll think, "oh god, am I going to become BoJack?"
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - 'Mindhunter'
That meticulous eye for detail that you have and your love for intellectual conversation will match every Virgo perfectly with the viewing delights of David Fincher's Mindhunter. Based on the true story of the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit, the show delves into the psychology of serial killers with such depth that you'll be talking about with everyone for weeks afterward.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) - 'Master Of None'
Both incredibly romantic and full of intellectual curiosity, Libra viewers will get a lot out of Aziz Ansari's Master Of None. Filled with romantic insight and intellectual observations about life and society, the show will make you feel utterly understood as a person, and give you something to talk about on all of the many dates that every Libra loves to go on.
"In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.
The next day, I got a text from her saying that although 'it may have seemed okay,' upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.
I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue."
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) - 'Big Mouth'
You're a walking scandal, Scorpio, and that's exactly how you want to keep it. Let that wonderfully raucous laugh of yours roam wild as you enjoy the wonderfully painful adolescent comedy offered by Big Mouth. And yes, some of the jokes may mortify at least one of the friends you watch it with — something that every Scorpio will no doubt find thrilling.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) - 'Black Mirror'
Sagittariuses can be pretty intense thinkers when they want to be, but they also have a tremendous sense of humor too — even if their taste in comedy runs a little dark. Charlie Brooker's dystopian technology series, Black Mirror, will be perfect for indulging the philosopher in you, while also giving you some of the bleakest laughs you'll ever enjoy.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - 'Santa Clarita Diet'
You pride yourself on being the queen of your neighborhood and love to maintain a clean home, thriving career, and healthy body. But honey, you need to let loose a little. The hilarious suburban horrors of Santa Clarita Diet (in which picture-perfect neighbor Sheila suddenly develops a disturbing taste for human flesh) should be just what you need to slow down, lighten up, and put your idealistic life into serious perspective.
Now all you have to do is schedule in some TV time and treat yourself to an indulgent viewing session of a show. One that should hopefully speak directly to some of your most innate personality traits. Happy viewing, folks.
